Questions to Karpin: where is Dziuba and why bother Golovin and Alexei Miranchuk?

Date: March 27, 2023 Time: 12:47:39

To prepare for these games, the team will hold a training camp in Novogorsk from March 19-28.

Basically, there are almost no questions for the composition, except for three.


Then Artem Dziuba scored a hat-trick in the first RPL game for his new team Lokomotiv. Moreover, he scored these three goals just before the gates of Rostov, Karpin’s team, in front of his eyes. And this despite the fact that the 34-year-old forward has not played since September.

Even before the match, Artem gave a long interview to Nobel Prize winner Arustamyan, where he told everything. Including about the difficult relationship with Karpin and the long-standing conflict with the coach, which the footballer considers resolved.

Dziuba made it clear that he was ready to play for the national team, if called by the coach. But no, there was no call, there is no forwarding in the extended list.

I will try to understand Karpin’s logic. If the national team had official matches, I think it would have called, perhaps, the strongest Russian striker to date. But the friendly matches, when they will be official, no one can say now. One thing is clear: not soon. Karpin is worth the team, counting on a bright future, when the Russian ban is lifted. By then, in this bright future, Dziuba can already kill football.

I want to draw the attention of Karpin’s villains that another honored veteran, Fedor Smolov, is also not on the list.


So call Alexander Golovin? Sasha is in great shape, he just renewed his contract, Monaco is in third place in Ligue 1, they are fighting hard for a place in the Champions League. Then check it in the actual training matches? The level of him is clear – this is the absolutely strongest Russian footballer at the moment.

The same story with Alexei Miranchuk. The boy plays on loan at Torino. Coach Ivan Yurych trusts him, Alexei always goes to the base, plays very well and finally seems to have started to get used to Serie A.

And then – a call to the national team, which does not play anywhere. I think the club will accept this challenge without enthusiasm. The same goes for Monaco and Golovin.

There is one more important nuance: the guys will have to get to Moscow in bed, apparently through Istanbul. Then also back. They will return to their clubs quite exhausted. For the sake of what, to see Tehran and Sochi?

In a recent interview, Valery Karpin said absolutely the right words. I quote near the text: “Why bother with Golovin or Lesha Miranchuk? His level is already obvious”.

Well, and Valery Georgievich?
